So, what now does it profit, tell me sisters, can you say,
When you cover up your head as you prophesy or pray?
If you’re froward to your husband, or you disobey your dad,
Does a scrap of “holy” cloth change your heart to good from bad?
And my brothers, fellow husbands, Peter Pan to my mind springs,
Seeing how you will not grow up and forsake your childish things.
Do you think that wearing pants fulfills the standard set by Christ,
Of laying down your life each chance to be the savior of your wife?
But a husband who will cherish, and a wife who will submit,
Show the Gospel to the World more than what’s woven, sewn or knit.
Only thus a wife with covered head, and man who looks the part,
Can impress the One who looks (beyond the outside) on the heart.
